When it comes to relationships, Remy doesn't mess around. After all, she's learned all there is to know from her mother, who's currently working on husband number five. But there's something about Dexter that seems to defy all of Remy's rules. He certainly doesn't seem like Mr. Right. For some reason, however, Remy just can't seem to shake him. Could it be that Remy's starting to understand what those love songs are all about?

This is one of my ABSOLUTE favorites by Sarah Dessen.  Not that I don't LOVE everything she has published, BUT This Lullaby just holds a special place in my heart.  It might be because Remy worked as a Salon Receptionist, and so am I.  Or it might have been Dexter.  Crazy, curly haired Dexter.  Who didn't fall a little in love with Dexter while reading the book. 

I loved how REAL Remy was.  A real teen with a crazy mother, a past she wasn't so proud of and a hard shell on the outside to keep away the reality of her feelings for Dexter, someone that she was starting to fall for. 

Don't want to give too much away...BUT if you have the chance to pick this one up, you won't be sorry!!
